    Either you actually damage the muscle by tearing it OR you overwork your muscles thus leaving uric acid which you muscles slowly remove over time.

    bannana's and other sources of potassium help a bunch, gator aid.
    Stretching after not before workouts is whats recommended now.

    You mean DOMS? Nobody really knows. Sports scientists and doctors are still trying to figure it out.

    It could be stress. Read "Mind Over Back Pain" by Dr. John Sarno.

    Getting punched repeatedly in the shoulder.

    Getting electrocuted.

    Lipitor.

    Those are three possible causes.
